" I saw them twice in Memphis in '95, fwiw."

And,I saw the two B'ham shows after those. I think the Memphis>B'ham>Tampa group of shows is a nice little grouping, personally. (Yes, I realize no one will mistake these shows for the Capitol Theater but they are what they are...)

A lot of people like to dog the B'ham shows but when I listen to them now, I hear them playing old tunes in new ways: definitely not deserving of the "mailed it in" comments that make some heads feel knowledgeable and superior.

Touch; HCS; TMNS; and, Dew are highlights.

Enjoy,

One of those Memphis shows had a legitimately good and interesting Estimated, but I honestly can't think of any other reason to revisit those. Jerry songs had become so painful by then.
